Mozy has been around for over five years now – but we’ve not stood still. So, if you signed up to Mozy some time ago, you may not know about all the features and functionality that exist in Mozy today. Here’s our list of ten things you might not have known you can do with Mozy.
1) Access your files anywhere
With Mozy’s web access portal, you can log into your Mozy account from any web-connected device and get the files you want, whenever you want them.
2) Get your files on your phone
With the Mozy app, you can browse and download any of your backed-up files on your iPhone or Android mobile.
3) Use Mozy to transfer files to your iPad or Android tablet
4) Preview your files before you restore them
Don’t waste time and bandwidth guessing which files you want to download, use Mozy’s thumbnail previews to check them out first.
5) Back up your NAS
If the primary copy of your data is on your NAS, make sure that’s what you’re backing up with MozyConnect.
6) Back up to an external hard drive as well as the Cloud
Two backups are better than one! Use Mozy 2xProtect for fast local backup and reliable offsite back up.
7) Remotely email a file to someone else
If you don’t have your computer with you but you get an urgent request for a document, you can email it without even having to download it yourself with the Mozy App.
8) Back up multiple devices on the same MozyHome account
As lots of us today have more than one device in our homes, you can now backup as many as five computers on a MozyHome account.
9) Help track your laptop should it get stolen
As well as helping you get your data back in the event that your computer is stolen, we might also be able to help the police locate your device. If your computer is taken, contact support at Mozy for help.
10) Transfer an exact copy of your file tree to a new computer when you upgrade
Mozy makes transferring data to a new computer child’s play. Simply log into your account from your new device to copy over all your files in exactly the same structure.
And one on the way!
11) Sync your files between your phone, tablet and other computers with Mozy Stash
Mozy Stash is still in beta so didn’t quite make our list but soon users will be able to synchronise documents across their devices with this nifty new feature.
